The following are excerpts from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
JR on being at RAW last night: It was great seeing so many of my friends from the WWE world Monday at the Ford Center. It is always good to catch up with long time acquaintances and how they and their families are doing. If I was asked once, I was asked a 100 times, ‘When are you coming back?’ I don’t have the exact answer to that question but my standard and honest response remains the same and that is that my goal is and always has been to return to WWE at Wrestlemania 26. If all the necessary arrangements can be made from a business perspective then that goal will hopefully become a reality.
JR on Bret Hart: Bret Hart and I had a long conversation Monday of which I enjoyed immensely. Bret is one of the all time greats, a WWE HOF’er, and has battled thru amazing adversity in overcoming a serious stroke to get to where he is today. Bret, as we discussed, will never be ‘100%’ but his heart and spirit are strong and he will no doubt do all he physically and mentally can to provide the fans their monies worth at WM26 versus Mr. McMahon. I personally can’t wait to see this attraction. Bret and I even talked casually about doing some appearances together, perhaps even some Q&A’s.
JR on Mad Dog’s induction into WWE HOF: Nice to see the double tough, legit badass Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. The second Montreal native to be enshrined, Pat Patterson being the first, was a great amateur in the late 40’s and is widely regarded as one man that even the tough wrestlers never wanted to cross. Bill Watts has told me of some classic, bar fight stories involving Mad Dog battling frisky patrons in the AWA that always had the same results and they were not positive for the civilians.
